On Earth Day, we drew the prizes for our Bicycles for Bluebirds raffle. The raffle raised much needed funds to help recover the Western Bluebird to its former range around southeastern Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands. The first two prizes, vintage 80s bicycles, were donated to GOERT by SPOKES and came with helmets hand-painted by local artist Elyse Portal (nee Parchoma). The bikes are a Specialized Stumpjumper, one of the first mountain bikes to be produced, and an Apollo Road Cycle, complete with its original working cycling computer. Both bikes are bluebird blue and in mint condition.
